Does anyone know if a regular phone wire will act as a LS links cause the port in The xbox looks identical to a Phone cable port.
And does it work. And where can you buy a hub for your xbox to hook up 4 xbox thanks

if your going to the pc to xbox or xbox to xbox it will not work, as u will need a crossover cable..
also the cable layout is not that same..........

You can get a hub at any electronics store. ( Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. ). The only thing is, the hubs aren't made for Xbox, they are made for PC. They work exactly the same, but I just thought I'd let you know so you weren't searching in the video game section for a hub. M$ is coming out with a hub, but it plugs into a controller port so I don't see how you could play 16 player. It seems like you could only play with 15.

u cant use a phone line cable, theyre two totally different things, u will need a cat-5 cable. go to www.gocables.com, they have some cheap cables, u will need a cat-5 568B cable. do not get crossover, i think, crossovers will not work.

Crossover cables do work. I used one last weekend.

The connection on the Xbox is an RJ45 port. Telephone Ports are RJ11 if i recall correctly
